Lucian Candles have paired green tea and basil for a refreshing scent with just a hint of sweetness. Not just for teatime, this candle’s lush and uplifting smell will revive you at any time of day.
Not everyone is into commitment, which is why we made these candles. Created for the minimalists and the fragrance fickle, the 50mL travel tins are the perfect way to trial a new fragrance. They’re mini in size, but not in scent — you can expect them to burn strong for 20 hours.
Fun fact: Soot was the original contouring makeup, used by actors back in the 16th century. Now that we’ve got Sephora for that, there’s no need for sooty residue in your life. That’s why we use sustainable slow-burning soy wax — not only will your Lucian candle last longer than an Elizabethan stage production, it’s also soot-free.
Some tips to make the most of your candle:
Real quick, trim your wick! Listen, we know the extra three seconds it takes to find scissors is annoying, but you’ll thank us later. Studies have shown trimming increases the lifespan of your candle by up to 15%. About 2mm to 5mm should do the trick.
Settle in and enjoy. To avoid the “tunnel effect,” the first time you light your candle burn it for at least three hours, until the wax is melted to the edges.
Save your breath. To reduce smoke, don’t blow out your candle. Instead, use a spoon (or a wick dipper, if you’re fancy like that) to submerge the wick into the wax pool.
